Yellow Pencil

A yellow pencil is used in school.

It's also the name of a D&AD award

"The D&AD Awards offer the creative community the opportunity to be judged by its harshest critics – its peers...Winners receive the highest honour possible – a Yellow or Black Pencils"

So that's where it came from. I thought it was a funny name ^_^

Looking for experts in Gio...or maybe I should stick to Rembrandt.... Imperial Army is gone

Philotas recognized me in Gio...

I will just post facts. I won't post anything like oh this ad doesn't deserve to win because of this and that. Just facts.

The ads are more than 30 seconds.

Viki appears too young to give blood.

Now, the reason why I withheld my criticisms was because I felt it's impolite to critique on other people's works. Who would want to say bad things on something that someone did with their full power and talent? It's unethical to say nasty comments.

I left that judging to the judge.

But I've changed now. I am giving feedback now.

I don't want to turn into a nasty person making nasty comments.

Well I didn't win any awards

Well I didn't win any awards, so I guess my ads aren't good. I was going for innovation, with the volcano and the planet vid, because I didn't want to copy anything or be ordinary, but I guess that's not what the judges were looking for.

Speaking of copying, two people just made dancing videos for Linksys.

More commercials for exposure

I enjoy making commercials. Making one is sometimes hard and sometimes easy. Once I come up with an idea, I start to work on it. There are times when I get stumped and can't move forward in the storyline. That's when I take a break. I go outside and just do nothing, and eventually, I'll be able to think of the solution to the script.

I constantly refresh the forum quicklink and see if there are any new threads. Sometimes, I get my idea from the forum.

It's raining now, so I have to wait for it to stop before I can record my voice. The rain would be heard in the background if I didn't wait for it to stop. Maybe I can incorporate that background noise as part of the ad. I don't know, maybe it would work.

My right hand hurts right from all the clicking that I've done. It needs to get some rest.

What I have learned so far: back to basics, get more rest

Things to do: finish more of book. Halfway already. Must commit time to it. Need to adapt on how to easily recall stuff.
